in 1993 the 46-year-old bill clinton took the oath of office for the first time. he became the first baby boomer in the white house and told the country that change is not something to fear. >> when our founders boldly declared america's independence to the world and our purposes to the almighty, they knew that america to endure would have to change. not change for change's sake, but change to preserve america's ideals, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. though we march to the music of our time, our mission is timeless. each generation of americans must define what it means to be an american. >> well, bill clinton, who had a history of being long-winded, went on to deliver what aides said was the third shortest inaugural address in american history. we'll be right back. both of us actually. our pharmacist recommended it. and that makes me feel pretty good about it. and then i heard about a study looking at multivitamins and the long term health benefits. and what do you know? they used centrum silver in the study. makes me feel even better, that's what i take. sorry, we take.

, president obama held fewer news conferences than george w. bush or bill clinton. over four years the president held 79 such briefings, that is ten fewer than mr. bush and 54 fewer than president clinton. >>> starting this weekend, president obama's limousine will carry license plates with the phrase taxation without representation. it's a protest over the district of colombia not having voting representatives in congress. president clinton used the plates but george w. bush chose to use a different design without the protest phrase. >>> white house is changing the signature threshold from 25,000 to 100,000 for official responses to petitions on the website. not a bad move. it comes after a request that government build a star wars like death star that got enough signatures for an official white house response. >>> and in utah, george burnett, a pro oil activist and small business owner known as the i love drilling guy is using his new smoothy shop to take a stand against liberal spending. he charges liberals $1 more for than conservatives for a 16 ounce smoothy. >> i'm very open
's personal vehicle post presidency. think of it as sort of a precursor to that similar to president clinton's clinton global initiative. well, if it's friday, we'll get david gregory in here. can the white house leverage the what house apparatus to work in the second term? mr. gregory? good to see you. let's start with what they're doing here, what they promised to do in the first term. their big organization would be used. they still claim it was successful. they say you think health care was hard without ofa it would have been even harder, things like that. but to see what they're going to do and the first test is going to be guns. >> what is striking about the gun proposals is the president has basically thrown a long bomb here to use a football metaphor. saying look. these are things i believe in. now look. if the public rises up we'll get it done. it is based on public opinion. i think the problem with that is that he understands the political reality of an assault weapons ban and high capacity magazine ban being so difficult in the house and one of the things they have to do is win th

was in some ways analogous to when hillary clinton as first lady in beijing when we were there back in the 1990s talked about women's rights being human rights and human rights being women's rights. >> inaugural speeches, there haven't been that many of them, so when you include language like president obama included, it sends a message not just today but going forward. it's the first time the word gay has ever been used in an inaugural address. my guess is it probably won't be the last time, but maybe it will. >> all the way in which he said, look, i support gay people getting married. it's been a sort of remarkable -- i do think it's both a political journey, but also a personal journey for him. >> mike duffy, now the really hard stuff on if there's going to be action on climated change, it's going to be very, very tough, indeed. guns something likely to happen. not everything that they want. the budget, the most immediate problem, tomorrow the house is voting on this extended debt ceiling and this is to avoid a confrontation in the short-term, but the large ers issues remain. >>
clinton will testify on capitol hill on wednesday. >> at state and defense, analysts do not see a lot of changes in direction policy-wise. perhaps less of an inclination for american intervention. senator john kerry is seen as a shoo-in to replace secretary clinton. at defense, after bob gates and panetta, the president's pick of chuck hagel sends a similar message. he is republican but the past statements on israel and iran as well as his opposition to the troop surge in iraq will likely make for a heated confirmation process. if confirmed, he will most likely lead major budgetary belt tightening at the pentagon. >> this is a president looking for what they used to say about eisenhower, against on the cheap. using drones, using intelligence in new way anything but to send troops into a foreign war. >> in the second term many analysts look for one last big push, perhaps immigration reform. with a growing latino vote adding additional pressure on both parties ahead of 2016 and others feel the time has passed for big bold moves. douglas brinkley said the gridlock in washington is very r
president bill clinton gave the film its most ringing endorsement yet saying that is shows how all of the great decisions in american history were forged in, quote, a cauldron of principle and compromise. now, that's a lovely phrase, of course, but is it true? let's bring in thomas frank of harper's magazine. good afternoon, tom. >> hey, martin. >> thank you for looking in my direction. now, tom, what is wrong with you because everyone from david brooks to bill clinton is in love with this film, but you say in your latest column, "lincoln" is a move ni that makes viewers feel noble at first but on reflection the sentiment feels hollow. it's not only a hackneyed film but a mendacious one as well. what is wrong with you? >> i don't know, martin. it's something -- it's congenital or something. i'm always like this. i'm always going the wrong direction, but it doesn't surprise me that bill clinton is going to celebrate something like this. i mean, come on. this is a man that invented triangulation. and you think of all the great triumphs of triangulation, of bipartisanship in the clint
. >> michael: let's listen to hillary clinton the secretary of state today. she had this to say about the hostage crisis. >> it is absolutely essential that we broaden and deepen our counter terrorism cooperation going forward algeria and all countries of the region. >> michael: what do you say -- you know, what do you think of the posture of hillary clinton now in reaction to what happened in aljeeria and what is going on in north moli in terms of how the american state department is reacting. i heard you say we have not been proactive here, but what do you think of the reaction? >> the reaction has been slow in coming. there are a number of americans still held hostage in that same gas facility. so they have to be very cautious what they do say. and i'm certainly not going to fault the secretary of state for being cautious. that said the counter terrorism cooperation has been slow in coming. the french have not been getting the kind of satellite photographs, drones and other technical assistance they would expect from their nato ally. the need to say the european
clinton will testify on capitol hill, wednesday. there are not a lot of changes in direction, policywides, perhaps less inclination for american intervention. senator john kerry isine as a shoo-in to replace secretary clinton. the president's pick of chuck hagel sends a similar message -- he's a republican, but his past statements on israel and iran and his opposition to the troop surge in iraq will likely make for a heated confirmation process. if confirmed, hagel will likely lead major budgetary belt tightening at the pentagon. in the second term, many look for one last big push -- immigration reform. >> the second term offers the president to be more risky, i think in terms of policies that they know are politically changing like immigration reform. >> with a growing latino vote, putting additional pressure ahead of 2016. >> the growing number of latinos and how they will affect the elections puts a lot of onous both parties to get something done. >> others feel the time has passed for big, bold moves. >> this gridlock in washington is very real. it is not going anywhere. the president
on election day is such that they don't need to the way that bill clinton did losing conservative voters, particularly swing voters anymore, because they have a new coalition and that's driving the president to say, look, we can satisfy these long-term pentup liberal demands and you see that as true? >> i would argue that that analysis is probably the best way of looking at this president and understanding what he's doing. democratic presidents in the past, you've looked at bill clinton, they understood and they believed there was a real benefit to being somewhat in the middle, centrist and working with republicans and getting things done and getting that vast bipartisan approval quotient. and this president hasn't done that, but he believes he has what it takes to have the democrats in office with a liberal majority and that brings up a huge question how sincere he is over the next two years about some of the item agenda, agenda items he's put forward like immigration, or whether this is about taking issues making republicans look like they're disunited and unable to govern and route th
through the issues of the events of the day, clinton yates is the current news editor for the washington express, a copy here. i took the bus to the train. the bus got caught off earlier than i thought but everything was smooth. rush-hour level packed. people being nice to each other. i even got a seat. >> this weird twilight where people were understanding their night of partying and people were getting up to see t you have a mix. >> metro closed with drunk people. >> the party you are referring to basically had to wait it out. cabs weren't anywhere because the streets were shut down. >> what do you do twhouf wait it out at 2:00 a.m. i know what i did. >> exactly. i am sure some people already in their seats or stalling on the mall. al friend took his post at the front door of the capitol at 1:00 a.m. >> on the job. who hell is going to show up at 1:00 a.m.? >> how long are those shifts at that point? >> schumer wanted a good seat. everybody had to get there early. under the constitution, the president and the vice president terms ended at noon on sunda
it to bill clinton for eight years. bill clinton was smart enough crafty enough to find a way to rise above and beat us at every turn. he did it by continuing to reach out. i always say when i was a lawyer, i had pictures after congress, all these pictures of bill clinton with much appreciation. it would drive my law partners crazy. appreciation for what? you impeached him. i said yeah, those were the days. you got to reach out. >> here's a question i don't think any of us can answer. only the president can answer. can he utilize the power, the threat of power of the presidency the way lyndon johnson did with regard to resolutions during the course of the vietnam war? one senator voting against him, not being with him. frank church had voted against the vietnam war. lyndon johnson says the next time you want to damnen your district call frank church. can barack obama utilize the inherent power of that office? >> if he has personal relationships -- lyndon johnson had remarkable relationships. they knew when lyndon called lyndon meant business. the president needs to

listen to newt gringrich. >> he has experience. back in 1995 when clinton was president, newt gringrich was the speaker of the house. he said he would shut it down to teach a lesson to the crazy spending democrats. he shut it down twice around christmas and thanksgiving. the national parks closed, people quit getting their social security checks, and guess what happened, it wasn't from a weak re-election to a re-election. not a good idea. >> jennifer: michelle, ben bernaanke told cnn that he's in favor of totally scrapping the debt ceiling. do you think he's on to something? should we get rid of it? >> i agree with him. there is no reason to have it, and then every so often we have to have arguments whether to raise it and whether or not the u.s. government is going to default on its obligations to people all over the world. i think bernanke is a very smart person and i think he knows what he's talking about and hopefully his sentiment will pick up steam on the hill. >> jennifer: we'll see about that. this is a subject that is not going away. let me switch quickly to politics. the rnc c

whether the president was going to swap him out and bring hillary clinton in. whether joe biden was a liability to the president because he is always sticking his foot in his mouth in a loveable sort of way. but whenever the president gets into a jam, whenever the president got into a jam in the first term, who did he turn to to get him out of it? joe biden. guns, middle class relief. the fiscal cliff deal. the debt ceiling situation of 2011. it was joe biden the president turned to. the president chose joe biden for a reason. a creature of the senate, he said at the lunch today, he will always be a senator. and joe biden is his brain trust, his institutional memory, there is the guy. >> and to get it done -- get it done there. i think he is the best vice president of my lifetime. because i don't think that dick cheney's effectiveness of torture is something -- >> for good or evil. >> and doesn't it also go to the kind of leader that barack obama has been, not only for the country, but for the democratic party. johnathan's point, joe biden was an early rival, who he said very in

clinton raised it 8 times. so, you know, both sides do it so it must be okay, and from the perspective of fair and balanced, it has to stop no matter who is president. we go through the same cycle, we raise the debt limit, spend more,en go out and borrow more, and raise the debt limit again and it looks like it's unstoppable, but this is the check and balance of how to govern our society. we can't afford the bills we have now to pay. someone has to say, no, spend what you have and let's move on. >> brenda: you know, it doesn't really mean anything. why not get rid of it. it's been used for political hay, both parties have made political hay out of it. >> that's right, every 18 months we're going through an economic crisis and here we have another one brewing regarding the debt ceiling. let's get rid of it. i'm all for smaller government, but this economy right now, guys, still remains fragile and you can't have the american consumer having to worry about going through all the rigamarole in washington all over again, and that hits consumer reading and we don't need that right now. i'm a

assault weapons during the clinton administration, and the same kind of prognostications were made at that time, yet we did a ten-year ban. now, i wish at that time the ban had never been allowed to expire, but it was. i do believe that just because it looks as if it's something that would never happen, doesn't mean that we cannot create a climate within the congress and it does not mean that the public cannot have an outcry sufficient enough for us to do something. so i never approach legislation or anything else in life as if i'm defeated before i've attempted it. >> sir, i want to just show everybody, because you bring up the public appetite for this. the "washington post"/abc news poll ban on assault weapons, the support for that is at 58%, those opposing it at 39%. also asked whether or not there should be a ban on high capacity ammunition clips, the support for that is at 65%. those who oppose it at 32%. you think that this is the president's job to sell now, to basically come out with a p.r. style campaign to get out there in front of this issue and convince america that the

. the richard newstat book about this, about the power of the presidency, it was kind of bill clinton's bible. obama seems to be moving forwards that away from the deal cutting. >> maria theresa, glen is talking long game, but in terms of the short game, the playbook seems to be one that he has used a lot in the last couple of months/year, i'll say, which is vault over congress and take it to the people and make them move however incrementally. the question is do we think is that can happen? can he have that kind of win on gun control 1234. >> he did exactly what he should have done. obama care, he said i'm going to go to washington, i'm going to go to capitol hill and negotiates inside, and people will come with me. what he is saying is he is basically drawing a clear line in the sand. this is where i stand. the american people, i'm going to -- i'm going to speak to you directly, and i'm going to go ahead and volley it over to the senate and they'll pass it. this is not my doing. >> hopefully they'll introduce it to the floor of the senate. that in and of itself will be -- >> i think the fac
hillary clinton called her counterpart there in algeria, again, for the second day in a row, and expressed deep concerns about the operation moving forward. the safety and security of those that remain hostages. there's a serious concern about the way the algerians conducted that operation yesterday. many of the, officials here at the pentagon suggest that the primary objective of the algerians appeared to be to crush the militants and not necessarily to rescue the hostages, and the state department spokesman said american hostages still do remain and talking about confusing numbers that were anywhere from three to ten america americans. two americans managed to hide during the initial assault on that nat gas complex in algeria and were able to escape unharmed, but it's believed that at least three additional americans are still being held hostage there at that plant, and to become even more complicated, a regional news agency reported that the militants themselves claimed to have two americans held hostage and are demanding the delease of two convicted terrorists being held here in the un
what bill clinton experienced but a lot of members of congress back there today and it is groundhog day, whatever you want to call it all over again. >> yes. >> because if the 112th was the most polarizing, what do we expect out of the 113th? >> we expect it more. so one of obama's goals, we'll see if he repeats it in the inaugural address, to change the tone of washington. he couldn't do it in term one. we go in to the new congress now with exactly -- with the dynamic that you have just described tamron. >> yeah. >> the dynamic -- i apologize for interrupting, but the reaction to this president. this week we saw a senator refer to him as king obama and allegations of tyranny and impeachment and beyond ideological differences. it taps in to what i think scares some people who are in the middle who may be moderate republicans or maybe not far to the left of the most progressive. somewhere in the middle and they become afraid and worried when they hear this kind of language coming from elected leader who is are supposed to look at immigration reform, gun laws and, of course, this economy.

order. frankslinrosis velt passed 37 executive orders and clinton and reagan did 350-plus. i am talking about policy issues of significant magnitude that need to have a full public vetting. the american people need tock engaged in the process. we need hearing on the matter ogun control, specifically. and we really need to talk about mental health and how we as a society are not embracing people with mental health issues. that's a bigger conversation, i know, neil. >> neil: thank you for indulging all of this breaking news and being on top of it. we told you about the mulvaney amendment, matching dollar for dollar, any aide they are getting in like-minded cuts from discretionary spending. that was defeated, as expected on the flor of the house. to missouri running senator roy blunt. seampt othat defeat, that was expected. but it did raise a question and one i am guessing to be raising with the south carolina republican who wanted to match the aid we are giving with cuts from somewhere else, was it a crazy idea? >> well, i actually think the better fight is the fight on how much money the
months after that schoolyard massacri in stockton, california. years later, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. and it was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as his predecessors did. and i mean that in this sense. none of the executive actions that president obama did today have anything to do with banning specific weapons, banning the importation of spefblg weapons the way that previous presidents did. what distinguishes what president obama did today is the breath of policy changes that he enacted. and, yes, on some access to some specific types of fire power in this country. but that is just one part of this very broad-based
phase of the so-called big deal in the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop. the economy in great shape and move toward a balanced budget. it started off in three phases. it started off with president bush's actions, the first president bush in terms of taxation before president clinton took office. and then the actions the president took in 1994 and then in 1997. well, we think there is a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt to g.d.p., our deficit to g.d.p. down around 3%, which is the basis of all economists left, right and center all agree on the areas we can begin to grow as a country. and as my grandfather used to say with grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail now between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling and we may meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and to put us on that path. talk didn't come here to about any of those import

congress passed an assault weapons ban supported by presidents ford and reagan. president clinton pushed as part of a broader anti-crime package. even rudy giuliani supported it against the will of his party. will president obama's have a better chance of passing? >> if it is in one package the entire package could rise or fall based on one vote. i think if it is a comprehensive package, it may be shifting majorities. i know in the crime bill, there was strong support and strong opposition for a lot of different items but there is a majority across the board, i think if we had broken that up, it would not have had the adverse political effect. many people believe they lost their seats in congress because of the crime bill. because of the assault weapons ban. others did not vote for it because they had death penalties and other problems. i think there was a shifting majority for all of those so that those who oppose one or another wouldn't have to step up and vote and risk their seat for the package. i believe there's a lot that we can pass. we should pass everything we can. i would be a
